Social care nurses are not “second class citizens”

Nursing regulator the Nursing & Midwifery Council used the platform of the Care England annual conference to launch a statement on the important contribution of adult social care nurses.

In the statement, NMC chief executive and registrar Andrea Sutcliffe said that the NMC recognises the “vital contribution that adult social care nurses make every day. Often they are one of only a few registered nurses in the service.”

The former CQC chief of adult social care added: “Nurses in social care are sometimes treated as second class citizens. This is not acceptable.  Social care nurses are responsible for managing and providing care to people with increasingly complex needs, requiring a very high level of knowledge, skill and competence.”  

  • Care home nurses are invited to join the chief nursing officer’s new free Care Home Nurses Network, offering access to practice updates, research, education and peer-to-peer networking. For more information, please contact Dr Agnes Fanning.
